Day #186: Dignitatis Humanae 2

Today we continue on in the Declaration on Religious Freedom.

Article 2 succinctly encapsulates the central premise of the document and elaborates on the fact that religious freedom is rooted in the dignity of the human person.  We are all called to seek the truth.  But that search cannot be coerced.

Here is the footnote:
